  1. Hi, It would be really helpful if you guys add the Eye-dropper to the color picker panel of the Lens Filter adjustment layer. Thanks!
  2. It would be very useful to have functions to select the same: Color fill stroke (color / width) Appearance To quickly select all your outlines, or background element in 1 color. Speed is everything. :)

    CMYK Values not staying same

    I'm finding a strange situation in AD; I set a series of color using CMYK percentages. Using objects in multiple files, I notice that the CMYK values are changing. So I created a swatch set with the proper CMYK values. I used those swatches to fill objects... and again, the values are not staying the same. The new values result in a color that is very close to the original... and it looks like the hex# is staying the same... so perhaps it's prioritizing the hex# and changing the CMYK percentages to match the hex#? But the hex isn't what I input, and i'm concerned about what changes might be wrought in the print process (the cmyk percentages are based on process swatches).
  4. I created a custom system color pallete. In the table color pickers (text, border and fill) when I go to the pallete list the custom one appears repeated multiple times (but multiple by a lot). In the normal color pallete works well, it happens only in the table color pickers. Procedure: Create a new system color pallete - create a table - choose the custom pallete from the table context menu color pickers
  5. The edit swatch pop-up pallete shows sliders and samples in RGB when in CMYK mode. The regular color pallete works fine.
  6. Looking for a color replacement tool. Here's my scenario: I import pdf file vector graphics from a music notation software. Unfortunately this program is unsuccessful in exporting cmyk-colors which are absolutely needed for print. With Indesign I could search through the whole document including all linked PDFs and replace any specific rgb-color with a cmyk-color. I'm totally not a fan of the subscription model of Adobe, so this feature would make me switch to Affinity Publisher. I'm already using Designer and Photo since Day 1. Replacement presets would be killer. Any chance that's a future feature?
  7. In a new CMYK document a frame text appears as black by default. That's fine. Unfortunately this Black appears in the cmyk slider view of the color pane not to be = 100 K but mixed 87 C + 78 M + 65 Y + 93 K, which additionally is a rich Black with 323 % print color. This complys to the default Black definition of an RGB document. Any chance to fix the default Black for all CMYK documents to 100 K?
  8. I had created a text box and I would like to fill it with a color and even change the stroke. If this option already exist it will be great to learn how to do it, otherwise, it can be an interesting implementation because this will avoid an extra layer as a background for the text.
  9. In PS there is a function called the Fill Mode. It is different fro Opacity. What is comparable in AF?
  10. Is there a short cut / shortcut key for quickly cloning the color of one object to another? For example, I have a square that is purple and a circle that is orange. I select the circle and would like to sample the color from the square to turn it purple. The only way I can seemingly do it is to select and drag the eyedropper tool (from the color palette), then sample the color from the square. Then I need to select my circle then click the colored sample from the eyedropper in the palette to change it's color. Basically, I'm looking for the exact same function that illustrator provides when sampling / cloning colors and I have to assume Affinity Designer would not make it a three step process when it could be one. In illustrator you can quickly shortcut key to the Eyedropper tool and it changes the current objects color to anyone that you sample. Thanks everyone!
  11. hello! I have to shoot some paintings for a friend and therefore I would like to use a greycard or a colorcard to get the colors identical to the painting. but I can not find any tutorial or hint how I handle this in AP - maybe you can help! Thanks Andreas
  12. I have a color image that I want to reduce the color on. It is too saturated. I don't want Black & White but less color so it approaches black & black. The topic in the Help for Selective Color Adjustment is not helpful. It doesn't say where to find the Selective Color adjustment.

    Submenu Color Pickers not working

    As I understand it, the Pencil Tool color picker chooses whatever color it’s hovering over and makes it the color for all future lines. Same goes with the fill portion of the Pencil Tool menu. Neither of these Color Pickers seem to have a visual effect on the color swatches in the menu, but do ultimately affect the fill of any objects drawn. Am I missing something, or is the Color Picker?

  14. Hi.. I use this document setup: type: print (press ready) color format: cmyk/8 color profile: U. S. web coated (SWOP) v2 But I have some issues, when I choose the color on the box, and I pick that color with "color picker tool" to coloring another object, the result is totally different, only cmyk code is the same. Yes I can just copy the #xxxxxx code to coloring another object, but I want to use that color picker tool because it's simple. And the client usually use AI to open eps file, I tried to export my files from affinity to eps file, and open it in AI, and yes the color code is changing, I'm confused :p Please help me to solve this issues. Thank you for your attention :)
  15. Is there a way to copy a color value of an object to the clipboard for pasting in an CSS file, for example? I need to apply various RGBA values (RGB with alpha/transparency) and am tired of manually typing them for every object. OK, I just found the dropdown in the color panel where you can copy the currently selected color value as HEX. That might be useful sometimes but doesn’t help me in this case. Firstly, I need RGB(A), and secondly the color is applied as color overlay effect, not as standard background color. So, I wish I could just open any color panel and there would be a similar menu as in the color panel to copy a value in different variants.
  16. Look like the gradient tool can't use document swatches for choose color and instead only use blended colors. Is there a way to use the document swatches? I did something wrong?
  17. In various other graphics editors it is possible to blend to shapes. For example you want to blend a red circle with a blue rectangle. I imagine this function would look like this in this imaginary function in Affinity Designer: You place the red circle and the blue rectangle on opposite sides of the document. You want the blend to rotate 360° and you want the blend to arc through a specific point on the document. You select the red circle and blue rectangle. You drag the "rotation center" to the side were you want the blend to arc. You type in 360 degrees in the blend tool dialogue box. You type in number of iterations, let's say 20. Then you hit the "Blend" button. Between the red circle and the blue rectangle there are now 20 shapes arcing between the two original shapes. Each shape - moving from the circle to the rectangle - becomes more like a rectangle, and vice versa. The color changes with each shape in the entire spectrum between red and blue, and the shapes in the arc rotates from the circle to the rectangle 360 degrees (negative values would rotate the shapes the opposite way). Maybe it would also be possible to outdo the competition by making it possible to do more color combination along the arc/path. Maybe it would also be possible to place more "rotation centers" - points through which the blending would take place.
  18. Can anyone tell me what keeps happening to my pencil strokes, and what to do about it? I am drawing using the pencil tool. The thick black stroke in the first image is what I have been using, and it is what I want. However, in the middle of drawing something (in this case, I was tracing the shape that is on the bottom left of both images), all of a sudden all of my strokes disappear (compare images below). The pencil lines are still there, but the thick black part is gone and I'm left with just the thin blue selection lines (not the selection box; I mean the lines that make up the curves themselves are now just thin blue lines). And I don't mean just on the particular curve I've been working on, I mean when this happens every stroke in the document (even on other, supposedly locked layers) has gone from thick black lines to almost invisible thin lines. When I check the stroke settings—brush width, size variance, solid line style, etc.—none of them have changed, but my nice thick black lines are still gone. Changing these settings has no effect, and undoing has no effect—I can undo all the way back to the point at which I first drew each line, and they are still thin blue lines the whole time, not thick black ones. This has happened to me in two different documents so far, and because I can't find a way to fix the lines or undo whatever happened, I have had to start over from scratch, which really blows. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it? I've searched the forums and tutorials for help but haven't found any info. If you reply please have mercy and use laymen's terms. :) I am very new to Affinity Designer, and to graphic design programs in general. Thank you very much.
  19. Hi, I'm working on a file at the moment and suddenly the colours won't change in it. I'm selecting everything properly and using the eyedropper and nothing is happening. Again, this isn't an problem with selecting objects. It literally only happens in this one file. Perhaps I've selected something I shouldn't have? Thanks for your help.
  20. I noticed when using gesture pinch out/in to zoom out/in sometime the color picker active randomly, this is a problem because it keep changing the color of the brush. It happened on pixel persona paint brush. It also happened on vector persona but the color not pickup, only showing the picker round magnifier. * I find a solution to avoid this, by turn on “touch for gestures only”, but I still not understand.
  21. Hi there, I am following the official tutorials and they say gradients are also automatically filled in recent color menu too, not only the solid ones. But in my palette there are only solid colors are automatically filled, like screenshot i’ve attached. Am I doing something wrong?
  22. Hi there! I'm astonished with Affinity Designer for ipad! I'm almost completely transitioned from my PC to iPad, just need a few more options. Suggestion #1: Select BY SAME FILL COLOR This is very important for professional work :) For example, if a group of objects (or shapes) are overlapping, what we need to do is to select them all, and divide them. After they are divided, we need to click on "Add" to merge the shapes together, and that's fine. But if we have a LARGE number of SMALL shapes, merging one by one can take forever.So, option "Select by (the same) Color" is very important and time saving for us designers. How I think it should be done: Solution 1. Click and hold the color (from toolbox) with pencil, or with finger, and while holding it select (with your left hand) three dots icon "..." and then choose "Select all" Solution 2. Add a new icon named "Select Same Color", or similar. Suggestion #2: SHAPE EFFECTS For me, as a Vintage illustrations and Logo designs fan, I would like to have a ARC LOWER, ARC UPPER, AND (possible) ARC tools. For example: Netflix logo. How I think it should be done: 1. After typing "Netflix" for example, convert curves, and than click on new icon set named "shape effects", than click on "Lower arc", or "Upper Arc". OK, that's for now, If I missed these options, if they already exist in same/similar form, please let me know.
  23. I cannot for the life of me find the Global Color option on the ipad photo app. I imported a project I was working on in Designer and it shows the global color swatches but I don't know how to edit them.
  24. I've just installed the 1.5.2 update and started a new document with a white background. The white is not white. It is a bit "tanned", or with a bright yellow shade. I pasted a print screen inside the document to compare the white background of a Instagram page with the white background of a new document. I'm attaching a screenshot so you can see what I'm saying I've tryed to change Color Profiles. Both RGB Color Profile and 32bit RGB Color Profile. Nothing changed. I'm using Windows 10 The new document setup is attached too. Thanks for your attention and any help would be apreciated
  25. Hello! Please have a look at the following image: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O8yEvxtFKmYVeJZn5QgdxLKUXv_eRsdO/view?usp=sharing It's a low-res artwork of a neuron, often found in scientific contexts. The left part is the original image, the right part is the original image where black has been replaced by white (so that this image can be put on dark backgrounds). The right part is also the result of Photoshop, where I've simply used "Replace Color", chose full black to be replaced by full white, tweaked a little bit with the tolerance, and that's it. I'm having trouble getting the same result with Affinity Photo, unfortunately. I think the fact that the image is basically low-quality makes it a little bit harder. The goal would be to replace the black stroke with a white one, but leave the red color inside exactly the way it is, just like Photoshop did. Here's my first naïve approach using Curves: https://drive.google.com/file/d/140_HbrpTRi7PwpjuwgKQmbqCb6zA78k9/view?usp=sharing As you can see, I can keep most of the red color, but I'm getting some chromatic abberation around the red circle (why?). Second approach, using Gradient Maps: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AwJtaEAy58O-O0ZWMno89S0sLIc1xbpC/view?usp=sharing The problem here is that I have to hit the same shade of red of the original image at any specific value point, which means I'm recoloring the red circle unfortunately. Any other approaches I missed, and which I could learn? I'd greatly prefer a non-destructive way (compared to Photoshop's) and keep using Affinity Photo/Designer (as always), so I'd be thankful for any help! Affinity Photo's Color Replacement Brush doesn't seem to work at all, it will try to do this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/101TrlMsApn2OfKwgkvKsM1bTs8M9-eEk/view?usp=sharing
